    Since I have had my Xperia X Compact, one of the things I've disliked about it is that it does not flash a notification message when I receive a new SMS message.

    All my other apps briefly flash the screen with a summary of the notification, but the SMS app does not. All I get is the notification sound and the LED light (the LED light flashes too slowly to be of much help, either, but that's another story!).

    The notification is visible when I turn on the screen manually, but I would really like my screen to light up automatically for a few seconds when I get a text message.

    I have tried replacing my current SMS app, "Messaging", with "Messages," the Android SMS app that used to do this on my previous phone, but it still doesn't show the notification onscreen. The notification settings do not seem to have an option for this, either.

    Any suggestions for how I can get back this functionality?
